    I am sorry, but mobisitegalore was not first site, providing mobile websites creation via phone opportunity. Furthermore – it even was not the second, or the third one :) . You should no trust on information on the main page of a site…
    There a lot of mobile sites builders dedicated for usage and creation via mobile phone, who are working for 10 years and more and have x 000 000 users. Mobisitegalore will never have such popularity. Check out Wapamp, Wapego, Xtgem and other very old and very popular competitors.

    That’s an easy one Jaks. At the top right of every GoMo News page you will see five little icons for you to click on. The one in the middle (third) icon is email updates. Alternatively, to the right is RSS feeds as the four icon. Either would work for you.
